Birch Cove Beach - Dartmouth - 11 - 5 PM
Shubie Beach - Dartmouth - 11 - 5 PM

Also, the Bedford Outdoor Pool - Bedford will be open for recreational swimming (call 490-4682 for a swim times and prices).

Lifeguard services had ended for the season on Sunday at municipal beaches and outdoor pools, but the unusually warm weather led to a decision to use the limited staff available to open the busiest beaches for three more days.

For further information, please contact the Beach Line by calling 490-5458.
